HVAC Concerns To Address After A Flood

What kind of threat does a flood pose to your home heating system?

In the event of a flood situation in your Rhode Island home, contact us right away. With the help of one of our friendly, trained technicians, we’ll be able to let you know what kind of damage—if any—your home heating system has been subjected to. We’ll complete an inspection and let you know what to do next.

What are the possibilities?

It’s possible that your home heating system has made it through without needing anything beyond a thorough cleaning job. It’s also possible, however, that your system requires needs to be dried out and disinfected in order to prevent bacteria and mold from collecting or returning.

Heating systems have many delicate parts, including safety controls, ignition systems, air circulation parts and gas valves. A flooded system can compromise these parts, and that can put your family’s safety at risk.

A rusting heat exchanger is something to avoid.
Your living space is important and needs to be a safe space for you and your family at all times. A rusting heat exchanger can put your safe living space in jeopardy if it allows dangerous exhaust to make its way into your home. Vaughn Oil’s reliable technicians can identify this potential issue for you when they come to check your system.

When our technicians inspect your system, they’ll let you know whether you need a cleaning, a repair or—in some cases—a replacement. No matter what, they’ll be able to answer your questions and help you figure out your next steps.
